On this edition of All Songs Considered, we share a track from Liz Phair, Bon Iver drummer Sean Carey, The Books, Agent Ribbons, David Dondero, Olof Arnalds, Vijay Iyer and Ra Ra Riot.
Rock guitarist and singer Liz Phair is back from a five-year hiatus with one of the most unusual and interesting albums of her career, but hardly anyone has noticed. That's because Phair quietly self-released the record on her website, over the July 4 weekend. On this edition of All Songs Considered, we share a track from her new album, Funstyle. Also on the show: a gorgeous new solo record from Bon Iver drummer Sean Carey, a mesmerizing sound collage from The Books, feel-good garage-rock from Agent Ribbons, new-folk singer David Dondero, Icelandic artist Olof Arnalds, jazz pianist Vijay Iyer (covering a classic pop song from the '80s), and the string-infused rock group Ra Ra Riot.
